Watford based 3-piece The Spitfires are songwriter Billy Sullivan on lead vocals and guitar, Sam Long on bass/backing vocals and Matt Johnson on drums. The Spitfires take in a wide range of influences from reggae and ska through to punk and soul. This melting pot has helped infuse the band’s own sharp sound and style.
Clash Magazine says it’s “Spiky, rebellious rock ‘n’ roll delivered with no small degree of street smarts and style” and John Robb from Louder Than War thinks “The Spitfires are musical street fighters with a genuine passion”.
The Spitfires are rapidly emerging as a politically-charged, grass-roots movement that won’t wait for permission to take their music, and their message, across the country and into the heartlands of the crumbling towns and inner-city communities that their music is built from.
